Drug and Alcohol Testing

Established in 1986 as Medscreen, we have been providing drug and alcohol testing to the Maritime industry for over 25 years. Our wealth of experience means that you can hand the whole testing process over to us, with assurance that you’re receiving an expert service, where and when you need it.

We have a network of over 700 collecting officers covering over 1,000 ports worldwide. Once on board your vessel they ensure sample collections adhere to legally defensible chain of custody procedures with minimum disruption to working life. Their professional and personable approach is adapted to an environment that is both workplace and home, where they may encounter many nationalities and languages. Our uniform collection procedures ensure you receive a consistently high quality service whether the samples are collected in Singapore, Southampton or San Francisco.

With three SAMSHA certified laboratories in the United States and a UKAS ISO 17025:2005 accredited laboratory in London our testing meets US Coast Guard (USCG) requirements.
